Names That Could Have Gone Better

So tomorrow afternoon, I get to participate in one of the Music Department's great traditions. It's an end-of-year progress review traditionally done with each student meeting for fifteen or twenty minutes with two professors. Mine is with my advisor and (maybe, he might not make it) the department chair.

As a side note, I am female, and both of these professors are male. In light of this and the fact that La Dissertation focuses on gender issues, I have to giggle that the Music Department refers to these as "2-on-1 meetings." It sounds . . . vaguely scandalous, I think.

Snerkle.

Hehehe! Obviously they haven't given much thought to this. Else they are very stoic. Most orgs in this highly litigious world would have succumbed to paranoid fear and changed that name long ago.

I'm betting my stipend on Option A there.

LOL. It's all quite funny and good that you have a sense of humor about it too:)

For some reason, it just kind of struck me this morning, and I had to giggle about it.

Uh, I'm on the teachers side thoug.. first what a bore to have to meet with each student for fifteen minutes, and second, what a bore that it has come to be 2 on 1 because 1 on 1 put them at disadvantage... and then damned students always find something to laugh at! :-) Life's hard. :-)

Thanks! It should be pretty good, especially considering that I had a separate meeting with my advisor today, and we pretty much talked about most of the important topics for tomorrow already.

Scandalous but not completely out of the question? ;-)

Maybe if it was the Marxist and the Caribbean Pentecostalist. . . (on the other hand, their wives would shiv me in the back.)

Whereas I, hearing two-on-one, get "violent" and think Pony can take them!. She's young and light on her feet.

But it does sound slightly salacious.

Bwa ha ha! I love that image! 33-year-old Pony vs. two professors in their late fifties/early sixties? Totally!
